As a 20-year veteran of the fitness industry, I have experienced the evolution of the popular Jane Fonda-style aerobic workout to the latest and greatest workouts, including TRX.
I am especially fond of TRX (Total Body Resistance eXercise) because it is easy to use and as challenging as I want to make it. The TRX Suspension Trainer was developed by former US Navy S.E.A.L. Randy Hetrick, as he and his fellow S.E.A.L.S. searched for ways to stay in peak physical condition with limited access to training implements and space.
TRX started as a parachute webbing, but has developed into a well-made, portable training system that is very user-friendly.Its harness system anchors to almost anything and forces you to use your own body weight for strength training, while allowing for the explosive movement of plyometrics.
Exercises performed on the TRX are multiplaner, mimicking real-life situations that require strength. The level of difficulty of each exercise changes by adjusting body position, making it appropriate for people at all fitness levels.
You can perform hundreds of exercises using the TRX, including push-ups, planks, tricep exercises, squats, lunges, and more. By hanging on for dear life, I mean, grasping the handles, you lean away or toward your anchor point, performing exercises. Your body works extra hard to keep your balance and stability. TRX increases stability, flexibility, and works the core with every single movement. You use multiple muscles at once, unlike many weight-lifting exercises, so you feel like you’re getting a full-body workout with every move.
And now, for some exciting TRX news. We’ve had an outdoor TRX Training Center for a few months now, and now we have indoor mounts as well. From today, February 20th through Sunday, February 26th, you can enjoy a complimentary 30-minute indoor class with a personal trainer. Check out the schedule and pick a day and time that works for you.
